Holiday Express

This week has kind of been a busy week. On Tuesday, we went to this thing called Holiday Express on post. They had all sorts of Christmas things there. All kinds of booths and things for kids to do and even Santa was there! Mommy had been telling me about Santa a lot and I wanted to go and see him already. I already knew what I was going to tell him too. I was going to tell him I wanted toys. And candy. I was ready. So we stood in the long line to see Santa. I started to get a little nervous and then it was my turn. I sat on his lap, a little unsurely, but then he gave me a candy cane and I was good. Mommy doesn't have a picture for that one yet because they haven't loaded them on the website yet. Soon though. Mommy really doesn't have any pictures from that night because 1) Daddy was at work still so it was hard for her to handle me AND the camera. Especially since all I could think about was grabbing that cool ceramic train Mommy told me I couldn't touch. 2) Even though my diaper was changed right before getting there, I managed to completely soak through my pants after maybe only a hour there. And Mommy left my extra at home because she didn't think we'd need them. Won't do that again. Otherwise, I had a fun time. There were lots of people there.

On Thursday, I got to play with a bunch of my friends at Laura's house. We all ran and screamed and caused trouble. It was fun. But that wasn't the only thing going on that night. Daddy's work was having a holiday party that night too. So Daddy came and picked us up and away we headed. When we first walked in, the first thing I noticed was all the jumpers they had there!! They even had a smaller one just for the little guys like me! I was so excited to start jumping. I've never really been interested before or even actually jumped in one, only gone down the ones with slides and stuff, but man did I love jumping in this one! And when there was another kid with me, I was even more excited. I really like other kids and I'm not too shy around them. I'm always saying hi to them, or trying to get them to play and stuff like that. I just like other kids. So we'd jump, and fall, and laugh and play. It was just fun. Eventually it was time to get out and eat though. After eating, we did a cake walk and I won. I picked out some yummy looking peppermint bark. It's just white and milk chocolate topped with crushed candy cane. Yum. And after that, Santa came!! So we stood in line so I could talk to him again. I wasn't as nervous this time, and I sat willingly, but I wouldn't really smile. I'd just crack a really small smile that looked more sad then happy. But don't let that fool you, I sat on his lap for a while. And then when my turn was up, I wanted to sit on it again. After, I got to jump a little more and then we headed home. It was a lot of fun.

Friday, I got to hang out with my friend Ethan. He's younger then me, but he's about my size. His birthday is coming up soon. He's gonna be 1. We hang out a lot. I'm teaching him a few things.

This weekend I went to not 1 but 2 birthday parties. My friend Kenzie, who turns 2, and Aida and Adarah who're gonna be 5. I definitely had a lot of fun at both the parties. Aida and Adarah are kids that Laura has had for the year while they're Mommy is deployed. I'm sad because soon their Mommy is coming back and they'll be leaving. I ask for them when I know we're going to Franky and Laura's house. We all hang out in their room and lay in bed watching cartoons and nap together. We've even played hide and seek together and boy was that fun. Mommy is trying to let me see as much as possible before they leave. Like today, I get to see them later. Good stuff.

So that was my busy week. Mommy put some pictures up from Daddy's work party for you :)
